Arsenal target Malcom could be off to Liverpool, according to Bordeaux manager

18 January 2018

Over the weekend reports out of France, and via Malcom's inner circle, all signalled that the Brazilian is Arsenal bound. "If Liverpool wants you to work for them tomorrow, you will go".

The 20-year-old has been earmarked as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez following his impressive performances in Ligue1 this season.

"I think we've built confidence from doing that the last few weeks".

"I'm a coach, I'd like to be able to count on Malcom [but] here is one person who decides in this, that's the majority shareholder".

Bordeaux forward and reported Arsenal transfer target Malcom has been disciplined by his club after he featured in a video posted on social media shortly after the team's defeat to Caen on Tuesday.

"If he's asking questions and he still manages to make assists or score goals, it'll be fine".

"[We made] things clear with his agents. He has not had his contract extended this summer just to give him away this winter", Martin told L'Equipe.

We never had the intention of showing a lack of respect to the club and to our fans, but simply we wanted to send a message to our families and friends in Brazil. Bordeaux President, Stephen Martin, meanwhile described Arsenal's interest as "hot air".

Now, though, they could have competition-from Liverpool, again, no less-with Bordeaux manager Jocelyn Gourvennec telling reporters that he knows he will have a hard time keeping hold of his talented young attacker this month.

According to The Sun, Liverpool has joined the chase to sign Bordeaux star Malcom in the January transfer window.

Teammates Cafu and Otavio were also present in the video, shot outside the club's stadium, and the trio have now been summoned to a meeting to be reprimanded.
